Well that didn’t take long.
Democrats took control of Virginia less than a week ago, and Governor Ralph Northam is already talking about new forms of gun control.
No one should be surprised by any of this. Democrats have been very vocal about their intentions.
The Blaze reports:
Gov. Ralph Northam confirms Virginia already ‘working on’ gun confiscation now that Democrats are in control
Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) of blackface fame boasted this week that his party is ready to implement an array of gun control measures in the commonwealth now that Democrats control all three branches of government, and his administration is already “working on” a plan for confiscating so-called “assault weapons” from law-abiding gun owners.
The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Northam wants to bring back eight “common-sense” gun control measures that Republicans shot down during a special session in July, prioritizing “universal background checks, banning the sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, restoring the law that limits purchases to one gun a month, and a red flag law that would empower a court to temporarily remove a gun from a person deemed to be a risk to himself or others.”
When asked directly about whether he is supportive of confiscating “assault weapons from gun owners” Northam replied, “That’s something I’m working [on] with our secretary of public safety. I’ll work with the gun violence activists, and we’ll work [on] that. I don’t have a definitely plan today.”
Gun owners in Virginia had better get ready.
It’s not going to be the landslide that gun control advocates were hoping for, but I think they’re going to get control of the legislature in Virginia.
I expect we’ll see growing interest in the #2ASanctuary movement in the state at the county level very soon.

Watch how ruthlessly Democrats go after this.
